World-renowned composer and producer, Lebohang Morake, popularly known as “Lebo M” has composed five key songs for the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster, The Woman King.

The film features Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, Viola Davis and Thuso Mbedu just to mention a few.

Speaking to SABC News on Saturday, Morake says he worked on the project for most of the year.

“I spent most of this year, probably since early May. But we started going into the studio about two or three months ago while I was at home in South Africa. It’s been quite a journey quite exciting.”

“It is very exciting for me because it’s the first time in my career I work with such a high-quality superstar project, with some of the best talents from the black community from around the world. The list is endless. To also work with a project by Ms Viola Davis is really awesome. Then I’ve teamed up for the first time in my career as a black film composer and I haven’t done that before to this calibre and most important to me it’s a project that is happening at a time period in Benin – a special theme where you have Hollywood behind a theme that features a brilliant African story, an entire army of African women that protected the kingdom,” he adds.
